Jealousy is an odd thing. We’re overcome with this emotion of insecurity, and we just can’t help but experience the strange and complex feeling.

There have been times when someone was better than us at something or had something we wanted, and we're filled with this envy and we can't control it. That's what jealousy is.

The emotion of jealousy is such a complex concept. We hurt people and interfere with other's lives because of a simple feeling. This feeling brings out the worst in us. We're overcome with a feeling of insecurity and anxiety that brings us to get in the way of someone else's business, and it hurts people, even if we really didn’t mean to.

Now, using astrology as an example, unlike the most jealous zodiac signs, not everyone gets jealous. It’s brought up in our personality. Some of us couldn't care less about what other people have and succeed at, while others feel a rage when someone starts dating their ex.

The worst part of that is that the person doesn’t want their ex back, they just don’t want to see someone else enjoy them — that’s what jealousy does.

Those who don’t usually get jealous are of a different kind. They have understanding, compassion, or they just don’t care. That’s what everyone should be like, but when it ultimately comes down to it, jealousy isn’t easy to control.

Jealousy is like a sickness, and it overwhelmingly takes over a person, whether they want it to or not.

Now, the real question we’d like answered is, which of the zodiac signs is the most jealous? If you ever come across one of the astrological signs at the top of this list, you should run. And while you're at it, be extra appreciative to the folks at the bottom of the list.

The Most Jealous Zodiac Signs In Astrology, Ranked From Most To Least Jealous

1. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are by far the most jealous of the zodiac signs. They don’t tend to trust people, leading them to make false accusations created from pure jealousy.

Scorpios don’t hold in their feelings very well, radiating with jealousy even if someone just stands next to their partner.

2. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers experience jealousy quite a bit but have a talent for hiding it.

They fall victim to envy a lot but are the best out of the zodiac signs at hiding it and keeping it concealed. They don’t often let others know when they’re overcome with jealousy, but if they do, you’re in for a show.

3. Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are arguably the most lovable and passionate of the signs. They understand when things don’t go their way and won’t throw a fit about it.

But when their partner pays attention to someone or something else more than them, their jealousy switch turns on. Leo craves attention from everyone around them, and if they don’t get it they’re a jealous wreck.

4. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos experience a lot of jealousy, but not when it comes to relationships.

They tend to be very critical of themselves, and if someone does something better than they do, they’re overcome with envy and will act as if life is one big competition.

5. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are both passionate and moody, leading them to be overwhelmed with envy. When Aries is jealous, they act quickly on it.

They have a tendency to be short-tempered, leading them to act based on their emotions, even if they really don’t want to. Aries don’t experience as much jealousy as the other signs, but when they do, you should run.

6. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Even though Taurus tend to be possessive and insecure, they don’t usually have a jealous side. Taurus is patient and understanding enough to know when or when not to act solely on an emotion.

If Taurus does happen to show a little envy, something must be bothering them a lot.

7. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns don’t usually experience jealousy as much as some of the zodiac signs. Sometimes, little things do start to bug them and they have jealous thoughts, but they never act on them.

Capricorns have a lot of self-control and won't usually let something small get to their head.

8. Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libra is one of the more understanding zodiac signs. They know things won’t always go their way, and they accept it.

For them to get jealous is a rare thing. Libras don’t like confrontation or conflict, so if Libra is jealous, you’d never know.

9. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius tend to be the odd one out; they don’t seem to get jealous. They’re very optimistic and outgoing people.

They don’t like people holding them back, and it seems like people are jealous of them, rather than the other way around.

10. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius won’t experience jealousy the way the rest of us do. They problem-solve, finding a way around feeling insecure for no reason.

If Aquarius does have a legitimate problem stemming down from jealousy, they’ll talk it over and work out any issue they have with someone.

11. Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces doesn’t get jealous — ever. Envy is completely rare to them because of their compassionate nature and love for people.

They don’t feel jealousy, envy, or hatred toward anyone, and if they do, it’s nothing to fear; they won’t act on it.

12. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini doesn’t feel jealousy due to one reason and one reason only: they don’t care enough. Geminis are one of the best people to be around because of this.

They have a certain level of understanding and generally have a care-free attitude about life. Rather than be jealous of people, they stand up and root for them.
